Drawception

Is anyone else playing this? It's great! It's a web-based game that combines the childhood game "telephone" (aka Chinese Whispers) with drawing. It works like this:

1) A player begins a game with a short phrase - for example, "A cow jumping over the moon"
2) A randomly chosen player then draws that phrase
3) Another random player describes the new drawing
4) Yet another player draws the new description
5) Steps 3 and 4 repeat until 12 unique players have participated

The results are usually hilarious. Here's an example:



I've had some great results so far, even though my drawings are pretty terrible.

My favorite description that I've had to draw so far:

"Drooling paraplegics crawl towards victim".

Really? I linked it up to my Google account in about 30 seconds. What problem are you running into?

It says [Log In Disabled] and at the top in a big red box it says something along the lines of "NOTICE: The game has been moved to the new servers! If you're seeing this, it means the new location hasn't propagated to you yet. Usually it happens within a day, but can take up to 48hrs. In the meantime, please feel free to browse the archives. There is much hilarity within."

Oh yuck, maybe try again in the morning and see if it works then? Sorry, I wish I could be more help. :/

In the meantime, this one is hilarious. That last panel...I nearly fell off my chair I was laughing so hard.

Wow, that last one took quite the turn, like a good sonnet. I'd like to try this.

I was able to get in with my Google account. If only I had any artistic talent whatsoever, this could be much more fun.

edit: Here is one I played. I'm David on there... I didn't contribute much but the Karate Kid part is hilarious.

I just went to the link Mags posted, then clicked on the Google icon up where it says "Play". It asked to access my google account, and I said ok. No tricks or anything...

Curses. None of those links are there when I visit the page. I can Google it out and find a cached version of the page, but then the links don't work.

I managed to log in through Facebook.

My first drawing was "sophisticated cat questions demon imp".

And now after allowing me to do a drawing, I'm getting the spiel about the servers.

Edit: I loved this one:

And now I'm able to play again. How random. I'll share some of my drawings once the games finish.

Edit: Here's one now.



I did the bottom left one (Lee). I'm very proud of my hobo penguin.

Why, this is just a stolen version of Broken Picture Telephone! Which I don't think has functioned for a couple years. Everyone loved it, but website was unstable and it eventually just went down and never came back up. Exact same concept and setup. I'm really sad it's completely down, because BPT had some games that made me laugh so hard my sides hurt

I'm excited someone else took the initiative to launch their own version. I think I'll give it a stab again...

If there's not a mobile app version of this already I'm sure there will be soon. Probably a good profit for whoever does it right.
